How Sensory & Music Play Provide Opportunities

Sensory play is crucial for brain development – it helps to build nerve connections in the brain's pathways. If you're bored at home (and handy with tools), take this opportunity to make a sensory board along with your child.
Sensory / Musical play provides children opportunities to actively use their senses as they explore things. Sensory play is crucial for brain development – it helps to build nerve connections in the brain’s pathways. If you’re bored at home (and handy with tools), take this opportunity to make a sensory board along with your child. If you do not have the tools to make a board, make a sensory box or bag or tub with different objects from around the house. The aim is to expose the children to different textures. You can also play a game where they close their eyes and feel an object and guess what it is.

Suggestions for things to put in the box: An old vessel and a spoon, an old-style phone with buttons to press, bubble wrap, an old t-shirt, an old (but clean) vessel scrub, cotton, a paintbrush, a comb, a rock, etc. Dig in and make use of things that are at home.
